I'm so jealous of how tidy your car is man, I've just read through pretty much this whole thread and I just love your car, I hope one day I can get mine somewhere near the standard of yours !! Although I'm not patient enough to get it that shiny :P I don't know what else to say other than its beautiful and well done !! :D

I used grey primer and Skoda metallic silver, I have a paint code somewhere, il try to find it for you, it was matched up to the original G60 colour by a friend who knows his paint etc :)

Cheers dude! I'm sure you can get yours to as good as mine, I've really not put much money into it, I just taken some time out to clean and polish it, then keep ontop of it once a week :)

Well, small updates, this week my MOT was due, some small jobs to be done...

- Failed Lambda sensor, the second one, post cat.

- Hazard warning switch only operating the right indicators when activated.

- Lift the ride height, I couldn't get it down the road to the garage, never mind get it over his rollers and on his ramp!

- Fill a small hole in my backbox with some exhaust repair paste.

- Typically my brake light bulb failed the night before too, so a new bulb.

- The new side repeaters just had normal 501 bulbs and not amber ones, they where changed also.

- Remove boot build.

Jacked up in the garage ready to sort this lambda..

And then the next day I set about raising the ride height, changing the wheels and removing the spacers...

Removed the boot build as last year he tried to lift it up and pulled the carpet off, thought best to take it out this time..

Then after the MOT, happily it passed, it took me all of 30 minutes to slam it, space it, rim it, bass it, and even put my new sidelight bulbs in to match my fogs, they look pretty mean at night, il try get a photo sometime :)

And I'm getting a little bored of my Baby G60's now, I've got a really OEM+ wheel idea in mind, very factory looking wheel idea with a twist of smaller tyres and spaced loads, similar idea to what's on now with a different rim, more shall be revealed if I manage to find what I'm after ^_^

like I said, love your photos, especially the way the wheels are reflecting off eachother and the fact that the valves match up. luck or not that's just amazing! haha.
